• "Anything is possible..."

With a team who always find a solution....

We are very lucky to have the most amazing team working at Prickly Thistle, and we know that our journey would not be the same without them.

The Rebel Team have truly made the impossible possible. With the first rebels joining Prickly Thistle in the spring of 2018, when our pop-up mill was established, we are very excited to say that we continue to grow in numbers. As you might imagine setting up a new textiles mill from a standing start, with legacy looms that are rarely used anywhere in the world and with only a few experts just within our reach, this was not for the faint hearted.

But they made it happen!

Every day, together we like to create just a few new rules for our iconic cloth, tartan. We do admit some rules are even a bit of a surprise to us from time to time. Armed with our trusty oil stained overalls, ear protection and fuelled with coffee, there is nothing this team cannot do with tartan design in mind.

Along with story telling tartans, designed, woven and made into product treasures, we love to share lots of other stories with each other. You will hear them all at our mill, from spooky tales to our favourite pizza topping of all time. Working in a mill definitely works up an appetite!
